The 34-year-old Northern Irish actor and 26-year-old American actress were spotted filming a honeymoon scene for the Fifty Shades Darker sequel in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat.
Dornan and Johnson both wore swimwear, with the actor in blue shorts and Johnson in a yellow bikini. The co-stars were seen chatting with Dornan’s wife, Amelia Warner, in between takes.
Fifty Shades Freed is the final installment in the Fifty Shades trilogy, which is based on the E.L. James book series. Dornan and Johnson wrapped filming on the second movie, Fifty Shades Darker, last week, which was shot back-to-back with Freed.
Fifty Shades follows the romance between Christian Grey (Dornan), a BDSM-loving businessman, and Anastasia Steele (Johnson), an inexperienced college student. The first film, Fifty Shades of Grey, included plenty of sex scenes, and the sequels are expected to feature the same.
“It’s pretty tedious,” Johnson said of her sex scenes in the May issue of Interview magazine. “We’re not having actual sex. But I’ve been simulating sex for seven hours straight right now, and I’m over it.”
Fifty Shades of Grey opened in 2015 and earned $571 million at the box office. Fifty Shades Darker will open in theaters Feb. 10, 2017, with Fifty Shades Freed to follow Feb. 9, 2018.
